All it takes to be a professional speaker these days is adding “Keynote Speaker” to your Instagram profile. Meanwhile, some of the most prolific speakers can walk down the street without being noticed, and their names would hardly catch anyone’s attention if overheard. So, how does anyone actually navigate the vast sea of potential speakers?
As a bureau, that’s where we thrive. Not only do we do that for customers booking their next event, but we also do that every day as we consider new exclusive clients.
We pride ourselves on representing speakers who are not just accomplished in their respective fields but strive to understand the audiences they speak to while inspiring, educating, and engaging them through impactful talks. What exactly do we look for in new clients? While it is much more of an art than a science, let’s explore some key criteria that guide our process:
- Expertise and Authority: The foundation of any successful speaking career is deep expertise in a particular field or subject matter. We seek clients who have achieved a high level of mastery in their respective domains, whether that’s entrepreneurship, marketing, technology, leadership, or any other area of expertise. Not only do we look for clients who have earned recognition for their accomplishments and can speak with authority, but those with a signature idea, theory, or philosophy.
- Compelling Storytelling: It’s not just about what you know; it’s about how you convey that knowledge. Equal parts captivating narrative and effective communication, we seek speakers with a voice that enhances their message, whether that is loud, powerful oratory, or measured nuanced dialogue.
- Diversity of Thought: We believe that diversity is paramount to our future. Be it race, religion, ethnicity, gender, ideology, and especially, diversity of thought. We actively seek clients from diverse backgrounds, industries, and walks of life and are committed to representing a wide range of voices and viewpoints to ensure that our roster reflects the rich tapestry of human experiences.
- Commitment to Growth: The world is constantly evolving, and so are the needs and expectations of customers. Our clients are individuals who are committed to continuous growth and learning. They are open to feedback, excited to adapt their message, and always striving to enhance their speaking skills and impact, year after year.
- Authenticity and Integrity: Authenticity is at the heart of effective communication. I’ve said it many times before, but audiences can see straight through a charlatan’s fluff on stage. We look for clients who are genuine, transparent and have a strong sense of integrity. Authentic speakers connect with audiences on a deeper level and leave a lasting impression. They not only speak on a specific subject matter but live it every day.
Ultimately, VaynerSpeakers is dedicated to representing thought leaders who have not only achieved remarkable success but also possess the qualities and values that align with our mission. We believe that by partnering with clients who embody expertise, compelling storytelling, diversity of thought, a dedication to growth, and embody authenticity, we can continue to elevate the world of speaking engagements and inspire positive change.
If you’re a passionate thought leader ready to make a difference through the power of speaking, we invite you to explore the possibilities with VaynerSpeakers. Together, we can amplify your message and drive meaningful change in the world. Let’s embark on this inspiring journey together.
